Argentina and Colombia to Draw at Half Time
While Argentina has already secured a spot in the World Cup, Colombia is trying to do the same. However, Colombia enters this game after a surprising loss at home to Peru, so they desperately need a good result.
With Colombia needing points and Argentina not, it's tough to predict what will happen in this game. So, we expect a close game that will be decided in second half, which is why our prediction is for this game to be tied at half time.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
Three of the previous five h2h meetings between Argentina and Colombia have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case in this match as well.
In addition to this, Argentina averaged 2.07 goals per game so far in the group, while Colombia averaged 2.27 goals per game in these Qualifiers until now.

Argentina vs Colombia – Recent form, possible lineups, and team news
Matches between these two teams are always exciting and we expect the same to happen now. So, let's check both teams out in more detail:
As we already mentioned, Argentina has secured a spot in the World Cup earlier and now they are only playing for honour and FIFA points for rankings. Despite this, Argentina won four of their last six games in these Qualifiers, including a win over Chile in the last round. So, they clearly take all their matches seriously still.
When it comes to team news, four players who got booked in last round will now have to serve a suspension – Otamendi, Tagliafico, de Paul, and Paredes. Papu Gomez is questionable with an injury, as well as Mac Allister with coronavirus.
Argentina predicted lineup:
E. Martinez – Molina, Martinez Quarta, Li. Martinez, Acuna – Di Maria, Lo Celso, Rodriguez, Ocampos – La. Martinez, A. Correa
The loss in the last round to Peru shocked every football fan in Colombia and put their national team in a tough position ahead of the last three games in the Qualifiers. At the moment, Colombia is in the sixth place, three points behind Peru in fourth place that leads to World Cup directly, and two points behind Uruguay in fifth place that leads to intercontinental playoffs. So, Colombia needs to find their best form for the remaining matches if they want to go to Qatar.
On the bright side, most of the squad is healthy and available for this match. However, Mina already traveled back to England since he is out for this match after getting booked in the last one.
Colombia predicted lineup:
Ospina – Cuadrado, Tesillo, Sanchez, Mojica – Rodriguez, Barrios, Uribe, Diaz – Falcao, Borja
